F.A.S.T. — Firefighter Assist and Search Team

Firefighter and surfing champion, Jerry Wallender, looks like a hero to the world, but he can’t see it. He keeps falling for these intellectual guys who end up making him feel dumb and unneeded. On top of that, Mick Cassidy, super-gorgeous firefighter and total homophobe, makes Jerry’s life miserable with his slurs. Then one day Mick’s nice to Jerry and, at the Firefighter’s Ball, Jerry offers a helping hand and ends up with a hand-job. What the hell is going on?

Mick Cassidy is great with fighting fires and solving math problems but rotten with people. Raised by a gay-hating preacher, Mick’s carefully constructed world of gay bashing starts to crumble when he meets Jerry, the nicest, kindest man he’s ever known. Mick’s never wanted a woman and can’t stop thinking about sex with Jerry. In fact, he can’t stop doing it. Does that make him gay? And if he’s gay, what happens to his whole life? A hook-up between sweet Jerry and mean Mick might be total disaster — or the smartest idea Jerry ever had.

My review:

I have not read any books for Tara, and I have to say that I loved this story. I loved the reality of Mick and how he grew up. All I kept thinking was how many kids out there really grew up like that. It honestly broke my heart. I was mad at Mick at some points in the book and yet yearned to comfort him as he started to realize how sweet Jerry truly was.

I felt for Jerry, he was relatable in the since of not finding the one that made you feel complete. Through Jerry I saw a strength that I understood was needed for Mick.

This was a great story and I am going to have to read the rest of this series.
